Automobile's Jason Cammisa talks through the heart transplant he gave to his adorable little VW Scirocco 16V. It only took him 11 cars to haul parts for it, but whatever. The end result was worth it.
Volkswagen's first spate of watercooled cars - discounting the K70 - were all named after winds. The sportiest of those was the Scirocco, and today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe MkII GTI looks as though it could still run like the wind. The question however is, does its price blow?

During last weekend's Volkswagen Scirocco R-Cup race Dennis Rieger caught an inside corner, two-wheeled it across the track, and crashed into the wall. He's unharmed, though probably lamenting a potentially legendary save missed. If only for a little more runoff.
Aided by a vantage point made possible by the balcony of our European office, we discover that the VW Scirocco is a rather desirable coupe.
No plastic wheel matches the familiarity of a real car. That's why these Finnish geeks plugged a PC directly into this VW Scirocco's on-board computer and, with some clever coding and a projector, created an incredibly immersive gaming experience.
This weekend I watched a VW Golf race to 200 MPH, a 250 MPH Lamborghini with a parachute and a diesel-powered Ford Mustang. I also saw police officers nodding their heads in approval. It's not heaven, it's the Texas Mile.
Check out that near-perfect three-way split for the VWs! That means you just never know how you'll do when you bring a Golf or one of its cousins to a LeMons race. Will it grenade the engine? Maybe! Will the electrical system poop out? Could be! Or will the car keep buzzing around the track all weekend? It's happened!
We're in the final hour of racing here at Thunderhill, and we can't say who the favorite is at this point. What we can tell you is that oil-coated VWs burn really well.
UDMan is writing for the CarDomain blog these days, but he's been kind enough to share some of his latest finds with us. The '83 Callaway Porsche 944 we saw earlier today got us in a German Callaway sort of mood, so let's check out this super-rare '82 Callaway Volkswagen Scirocco that UDMan spied while covering a…
Realizing the Italian flag looks better on cars than the German flag, Volkswagen chose the Bologna Motor Show to launch the VW Scirocco Studie R. Essentially a hopped-up version of the standard car, it features a 270 HP version of the 2.0-liter TSI turbo-four sending its power through a 6-speed DSG gearbox. All the…
Seems like EA Deutschland is getting their slice of this SEMA-style customizing madness by cramming a Scirocco with every bit of video game paraphernalia they could draw together (ed - no Master System though). This little hatch is packed full of 30" screens, a XBOX 360, Playstation 3 and enough heart-stopping audio…
Automotive News Europe is reporting that Volkswagen may reverse course on the new Scirocco and offer the vehicle in the United States. VW execs originally opted not to sell the Scirocco here due to fears it would cannibalize sales from the GTI and because the strong Euro would have made the car too expensive. Since…
